Running On...  

The best way to get a taste for the track!

Fancy yourself as the next racing champion? Keen to learn the limits of a car in a safe, controlled environment?

Our Driving Experience Course will see you venturing out onto the 1.85-mile circuit for some seriously thrilling laps in a duo of our Ford hot hatches with the assistance of a qualified instructor.

Beginning with some sighting laps with your instructor, it’ll then be your turn to test your skills by getting behind the wheel of both a Ford Fiesta Zetec S and a 221bhp Ford Focus ST2.

The day concludes with a group debrief and certificate presentation with a prize on offer for ‘driver of the day’!
